Why do Republicans?
Consider the larger picture of the American public. The Democrats and the RINOs, of which Boehner is obliged to club with, believe that the American public is mostly a group that likes getting from the government. Takers, in other words.
So, then, with such a public, will America be an explicit one-party state (what the Democrats would like), or an effective one-party Demopublican state? In either case, one dedicated to welfare giving to the public, that believes the "makers" have a patriotic duty to give and give for the good of the all.
And, what do we, who actually like our property rights and individual liberties, do about it?
